>>Pink Tunes and its hardware driver were written in raw 6502 assembly
code. Even though there are Java-based web simulators that can execute 6502
code, it would be insane to run Pink Tunes on anything but vintage hardware
unless you totally ported the code to a modern language.

I think the fact of code being written in an 8-bit assembly language is
rather moot, these days .. There are some pretty darn fine 6502 emulators
(*) out there, written in high-power C, which might do the job of
resurrecting the value of archaic code-bases quite well - and even probably
a dynarec or two could be applied to the issue, were there interest. There
just has to be interest and motivation - its certainly not a technical
issue.
